Used to visit The John Millington regularly but after three occasions when the service was embarrassingly slow, we moved our custom elsewhere. However, the food has always been good and we would like to return. from reading some of these reviews, it seems that nothing has changed. Would appreciate comments on service from anyone who has been recently.

My husband and I went to the John Millington for lunch to celebrate our anniversary having been on quite a few occasions previously. The meal was ok but certainly not as good as it has been in the past and we were disappointed that they no longer serve proper home made chips but instead what seemed like oven chips which... More

Went for a roast the other day along with my children who chose food off the children's menu. They couldn't eat theirs and they are big eaters! just the quality was awful. My roast was passable but the potato's tasted of nothing, two many zaps in the microwave perhaps? Had to wait quite a while too and the waitress kept... More

I used to visit the John Millington occasionally quite some time ago, but found the prices high, the service slow, and the beer sometimes a bit 'variable'. When I spotted that the pub had got itself into the 2015 CAMRA Beer Guide I decided another visit was due. Much the same as before - a few staff around but chatting... More

The John Millington is quaint and welcoming- although maybe better suited to the countryside rather than on a main road! Visited on a thursday afternoon and it was very quiet (although we had a 30+ min wait for food). The staff were very friendly and accommodated our requests (no cheese etc). The food was well worth the wait- we ordered... More

My guests came from far and wide including a couple visiting from Australia others were from Warrington, Preston,Bury & Rochdale. So when 3 of my guest realised... More

We had lunch after a 23 hour flight from Australia. My wife's steak and my steak and ale pie were wonderful. Tables aren't on top of each other and the prices were ok too

A great place for a romantic meal. Excellent food and you can stay in the restaurant or sit at one of the many table in the nooks and crannies, especially good on Fridays when they have a band on
